Before we moved to our current city, we spent two and a half months in a small town in the Mid-North region of Morocco for Community Based Training (CBT). Mid-January to the end of March.
I’ve written extensively about our CBT experience—but not yet on this blog. I want to show off some of the highlights of those first few months in this country. Next time, we’ll introduce our CBT host family like we did with our final site host family. And we’ll need a separate post for our CBT Wedding! (Tomorrow I will upload that one, inshallah!) For now, I’ll leave the summary at this:
It was an extraordinary, intense time in our lives. The air was so cold, our breaths rose in wisps even when we were indoors. We built a little community within a community. When we left Seattle, we knew we would miss Seattle—and we were prepared for those feelings. What we didn’t realize was how deeply and achingly we would be homesick for a home in Morocco.
